100th case with pelvic fracture fixation implant completed

Orthopedic

Brett Crist, MD, completed the 100th case with CurvaFix's IM implant for pelvic fracture fixation.

Dr. Crist performed the case for a 70-year-old woman at Columbia-based University Hospital at the University of Missouri, according to a Sept. 6 news release. CuraFix's IM implant lets surgeons choose their own entry point and steer in a minimally invasive procedure. 

"The 100th patient treated by the CurvaFix Implant is an important milestone for CurvaFix and is indicative of a large unmet clinical need our curved implant can address in patients suffering from fragility or high-impact fractures of the pelvis," Steve Dimmer, CurvaFix's CEO, said in the release.
